Crafting a Strong Research Proposal Workshop

Learn how to craft a strong research proposal at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, October 10, 2014 in Siegel Hall, Room 237. Proposal writing is not at all like academic writing. You must use a variety of techniques to ensure your proposal has the best chance of being read, scoring high, and getting funded. In this workshop you will learn ways to create a strong proposal while avoiding common pitfalls.

The workshop also will include information on how to make sure your proposal is truly “cutting edge.” This means knowing how to show all the references and citations that prove you have a solid grasp of your field. A Galvin librarian will present an overview of the resources that can help you prove your case.

To reserve a spot, email Mariam Othman at The room accommodates 30 participants; walk-ins welcome as space permits. There is no fee for these workshops, which are provided as a service of the IIT Office of Research. This workshop is intended for IIT faculty and staff (Staff must have supervisor’s approval to attend).
